UC San Diego Rowing Camps for Boys and Girls
- La Jolla, California
- Visit Camp Website
The UC San Diego Men's and Women's Crew teams invite you to participate in our summer camps for boys and girls. The camps will take place out of our beautiful boathouse located right on Mission Bay.
These instructional camps are open to all skill levels from experienced rowers to those who have never ever seen a boat! In addition to instruction there will also be optional discussions on college recruiting and how to best market yourself to college crew coaches.
Rowing is a sport that will offer you the opportunity to be on the water, work with others in a focused environment, push yourself physically and mentally, and potentially open up opportunities for athletic scholarships and admissions assistance.
Prerequisites: Campers are expected to know how to swim.
What to wear: Sneakers, athletic shorts, and t-shirts (nothing too baggy). Temperatures can be in the 50s in the early morning so a sweatshirt or light jacket is advisable as well.
What to bring: Sunscreen, towel, hat, water bottle, and snacks if needed.
Takeaways: In addition to top notch rowing instruction you will receive a complimentary t-shirt.
Refunds: One month prior to the start of camp 90% refund available, within one month 50% refund available.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions. See you this summer!
